BWW Review: Wilbury Theatre Group's Meandering JERUSALEMBWW Review: Wilbury Theatre Group's Meandering JERUSALEM
by Andria Tieman - May 24, 2016

If you go to see JERUSALEM, now on stage at Ensemble Theatre, don't expect it to be about people living in the Israeli city of that name, or of the 2013 film of the same name concerning a group of messianic pilgrims abandoning their native Sweden to emigrate to Palestine. (more...)

The leader of the pack, a Falstaff of sorts Johnny 'Rooster' Byron, surveys the surroundings outside of his trailer home - a refrigerator, scattered bottles and chairs at a table, and a destroyed 'telly.' The tales begin to spin as plans for a day of fun at the local county fair are marred by an eviction notice on Rooster's door. Country life seems anything but simple in Profiles Theatre's ambitious production of Jez Butterworth's Tony winning play, Jerusalem. (more...)
